Having your own car that you can drive around – for getting to work, going to the supermarket or visiting a nearby suburb – definitely makes things a lot easier. You won’t have to stress about being late and you can even comfortably relax in the car whilst travelling.

But of course, you know that you can’t always have your own car by your side. That’s why there are rental car companies, such as Alpha Car Hire, that provide you with an alternative to having and using your own car.

When to Rent and Why Rent a Car?

1. Convenient choice for holidays

When you’re travelling to Brisbane from another city, state or country, bringing your own car just doesn’t seem to be practical, aside from the fact that doing so could increase holiday expenses. Many tourists prefer hiring a car or van that they can drive around the city, giving them more freedom to travel and more time for visiting tourist destinations.

If you are travelling by plane and looking for a convenient car hire, there is an information desk for rental cars. You can also book a car online via Alpha Car Hire and enjoy cheaper rental options.

2. Travel longer and farther without worrying about your car’s performance
When you take your car for a long-distance drive, there’s usually a concern about its long-term performance. On the other hand, by hiring a rental car, you wouldn’t have to worry about these things. You can choose a car or vehicle type that is perfect for the travel distance and terrain type, and just enjoy the trip. This basically means more adventures for you as you can finally drive to places where your own car can’t take you!

3. More choices of vehicle models and car size
So you’re driving to a local destination in Queensland with the entire family and a group of friends. But you only have one car to use – and it doesn’t even have enough space for everyone. What do you do?

This is when renting a vehicle becomes a really valuable choice. You have the advantage of having several options for choosing a model, vehicle type and seating capacity. No more hassles about the comfort and safety of each passenger.

4. Save on Your Maintenance and Travel Expenses
When hiring a car, you’ll need to pay for rental expenses. This is what holds people back from renting a car for their travel needs when they can use their own car. But what you may not realise is that, the maintenance cost you incur over time is actually much more expensive than if you rented a vehicle.

So, if you’re still unsure about whether or not renting a car is the right option for your travel, just think about the benefits and long-term savings rental cars will give you.
